100 Years Ago From the Ross-shire Journal of Friday, June 15, 1917 BRAHAN - Death of Well Known Farmer - Much regret was expressed by a wide circle of friends last week at the death of a well-known farmer, Mr George Stewart, Bogbain. His family was one of the oldest on the Brahan estate, his ancestors having come here from Wigtownshire about 300 years ago, and were continuously employed on the estate.
